I planted some sweetcorn indoors at the start of April and they were doing really well up up until last week when they started going brown on the stems and keeling over. I've only one survivor left.
What am I doing wrong?

probably growing them in a low temperature with high humidity and possibly overwatering. They possibly were not hardened off properly when you got them. You are still in time to sow more seeds and grow them on in hopefully more favourable conditions.

My tuppence worth is at the following site

I think I'll stick to lettuce and Green Giant cans for now.

Regards to my home county, born a hake and proud of it.
